Science & Research

Verifiable Science

l-Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) occurs naturally in the body's muscle and nervous tissues and is formed by the amino acids alanine and histidine. Levels of this dipeptide can decline with age.1 It is a water-soluble antioxidant and promotes cell health and cell longevity.2 In vitro, L-carnosine maintains healthy advanced glycation end-product, or AGE, activity. These end-products are formed when aldehydes (such as aldose and ketose sugars) and lipid peroxidation by-products bind to proteins.3 L-Carnosine plays a role in maintaining DNA integrity.4 L-Carnosine may also support superoxide dismutase activity.5 In addition, L-carnosine may help to maintainhealthy peptide metabolism in the brain and its membrane-stabilizing properties support cellular health in the cardiovascular system.6,7 Some evidence suggests that the concentration of L-carnosine isan important factor in high-intensity exercise performance.8‡
